Country great DOLLY PARTON has joined a growing list of celebrity supporters of the BOOT CAMPAIGN, which features artists, athletes and politicians posing for photos wearing military combat boots in support of our troops.
DOLLY said: “So many people, regular folks and celebrities, send out love and sincere thanks to you for keeping us safe and fighting for our freedom. Let me add to that loving list. Thank you from the bottom of my country heart. I will always love you.”
The BOOT CAMPAIGN is a grassroots initiative started by five TEXAS women now known as the BOOT GIRLS, who decided to take action after reading retired NAVY SEAL MARCUS LUTTRELL’S book “Lone Survivor.”
The campaign encourages AMERICANS to purchase a pair of army combat boots to wear in support of our troops. Proceeds from the boot sales are donated to partner charities, including the LONE SURVIVOR FOUNDATION.
